New Set of Furnitures for My School

#LombokBangkitKembali – The earthquake that struck Lombok a year ago caused a lot of damage to school infrastructure. Especially school facilities and infrastructures such as learning desks and chairs. Damage to the learning tables and chairs causes students to learn only on the floor or tarpaulin.

This also happened at SDN 7 Sokong (elementary school), as one of the schools affected by the earthquake. Students in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades learn without tables and chairs. They all study on the floor without a base at all.

Seeing these conditions Wahana Visi Indonesia (WVI) supported by World Vision United States (WV US) provides desks and chairs assistance for 24 schools in North Lombok Regency (KLU) and East Lombok Regency (Lotim).

SDN 7 Sokong is one of the schools that get the help of desks and chairs. When the truck transporting desks and chairs entered the school grounds of SDN 7 Sokong, the happy faces appear of the students and teachers. They were very enthusiastic to see the tables and chairs they had been waiting for so long to finally arrive.

"We are very grateful to get the help of this desk and chair. Initially, we only asked for 80 sets but instead, we got 120 sets, more than we asked for. Alhamdulillah, now children don't need to study on the floor anymore. As can be seen, the tables and chairs are immediately used by children," explained Yeni Hartini, Principal of SDN 7 Sokong.

WVI will continue to distribute tables and chairs until January 2020 in North Lombok Regency.
